The Ministry of Unification said that North Korea notified the South on Tuesday that it would travel to the destinations via the overland route of Gyeongui Line on Feb. 6 and return to the North on Feb. 12 via the same route.

Earlier, in working level talks on Jan. 15, the North had said it would send its art troupe through Panmunjeom.
